I changed a couple of things:
1. I used green chili enchilada sauce in place of the regular
2. I used cottage cheese in place of the ricotta
3. I used 2 cups Mexican cheese and 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese
4. I put the lasagna together in the morning and popped it into the oven when I got home from work
We LOVED it. Very tasty. The only change I would consider would be using 2 cans of sauce instead of 3.
This is really good! I did, however, add more chicken and left out the eggs, ricotta cheese, and cilantro. I also used mozzerella cheese instead of the mexican cheese blend.
Poor blend of flavors. The only flavors that we experienced were the cilantro and enchilada sauce. We couldn?t taste the cheeses, chicken or even the onion.
This was so good! Don't skip the fresh cilantro... it really boosts the flavor! We used southwest seasoned, cooked chicken and topped our servings with a big dollop of sour cream.
